Much better now, thanks

I'm starting to feel human again. Yay! Do you know how good it feels to brush your teeth and have a bath after you've been sick? SO good! (Again, I'm searching for a metaphor, but I got nothin'.)

I'm surprised I actually managed to post yesterday. Truth is, I was a little delirious, so you'll have to forgive me for my lack of discretion. I was so exhausted all day, I couldn't make it from one room to the next without stopping to rest on whatever piece of furniture was in my direct path. At one point, Marcel asked what I was doing on the couch when I'd said I was going to bed and I said, plaintively, "I just couldn't make it that far." I think the only reason I made it to the computer was because I had to get downstairs to throw the soiled clothes and bedding in the washing machine, and the computer chair was the closest place to rest before making my way back to bed.

I just have to say one more thing... I think my daughter Julie is growing up to be a beautiful gracious girl, and the next time I'm sick, I want her around. She brought me blankets, offered to get me drinks, and basically served me whenever she could. This morning, when I emerged from my bleariness, she brought breakfast in bed. How good is THAT? (I'll overlook the fact that she's fighting with her sister right now because she was so good to me yesterday.)

Update on Julie:
Today, while I sat by and watched rather groggily, she baked the most amazing blueberry muffins. I may just have discovered the perfect "after-you've-been-sick-and-can-barely-smell-food-let-alone-digest-it" food - Julie's blueberry muffins! Mmmmmm...

They do look rather delicious, and I see that many are gone. Do you have any Julies to spare? No, I didn't think so.

I am so jealous of you. Last year when I was sick and preggo, my darling three-year-old daughter did anything BUT ease my pain...

Heather...no time to read much, but do hope you are feeling better.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Swampy will be back to blogging in about 10 days.

Melissa said...

Ooh those muffins look delicious. What a sweetheart. And I love your yellow tile! It is so cheery!

Mmmm. A little butter on those muffins and a glass of milk. I know just how it feels to come out of a sickness-induced funk. You feel lighter and more lucid. Just the way I do after a sinus infection. Glad you're feeling better.

you must know that blueberrys are my favorite

I think your Julie and my Olivia are almost the same age. They look close. 10. Olivia likes to cook and mother as well. It's such a sweet thing to watch their natural personality come out with little to no encouragement.

Those muffins look great. Did she use real blueberries? We usually do the box mix. Blueberries are hard to come by here unless they are frozen.

Joyce said...

stand proud, Heather. It looks like you're doing a dynamite job of raising your offspring.
